Delta Air Lines` first Airbus A220-100 rolled out of Airbus paint-shop in Mirabel, Québec, Canada today. The painting process took nine days, 200 rolls of masking tape and 165 gallons of paint to complete.
Delta will be the first U.S. airline to take delivery of the A220, featuring a state-of-the art interior and delivering best-in-class fuel performance.
Now the aircraft will move to pre flight activities in the A220 flight line hangar in Mirabel before taking off for its first flight later this fall.
Delta’s first A220 is scheduled to begin service in early 2019
